    sweet I was thinking she looked like a jungle, I got her thrown in with an albino Darwin same size and clutch.

    just what I was told from seller, had them shipped from brissy, She was free so I cant say I feel ripped off just trying to find out little more about her before re selling.

    cheers, OK so I wasn't crazy she didn't look like any Darwin I had ever seen. I think im just going through here into the breeding project, only way to find out if she is het or not.

    Cheers everyone for comments it has helped.

    doesn't het Darwin's look different to normal? it looks a lot like a jungle, but you wont know for certain until you get babies from her.

    Having albino babies only proves she's a het. Not if she's a pure Darwin.

    My 2 bobs worth says its darwin x jungle. Only way to tell if its a het or not is to breed it with another het, resulting in 25%albino, 50%het, 25%wild type offspring, or breed to an albino for 50%albino, 50%het offspring.
    But to throw in another 2 bob, who really cares, its a nice looking snake and if your guna sell it anyway just sell it to one of the minority that dosnt wont to be a breeder.
